Worcester made cornucopia wall pockets from c1755-60, right after which latter date, they mysteriously seemed to go out of fashion. These wall pockets were originally quite expensive, and offered both singly and in pairs (right and left). They came in both colors (very rare) and blue and white, and two sizes : about 8-9” and 11” – the prices affected more by color than by size. All pockets were always very well painted.
